    Default Essential runes for Raids and Experts?

    I am new to this. What are the essential runes I should be putting on my gear to get into the better dungeons?

    I have both a cleric and two DPS toons.

    Any advice is appreciated.

    Is your cleric tanking? healing? DPS?

    What class are your other toons? Rogue, warrior, mage?
    Are they tanking? healing? support? DPS?

    Are you willing to spend a lot of plat on Runes, or just get the basic?

    For experts and T1 raids I don't think it matters all that much, just make sure every piece you have on has a rune on it that makes sense. (Like wisdom/spellpower ones for Clerics and Strength for Warrior etc . . .).

    If you are in a raiding guild that is on progression through HK/RoTP or getting ready for ID and you need to be at peak performance I believe there are gear guides in pretty much every class guide folder on the forums that list runes in order of usefulness.

    Thanks for asking.

    The cleric is a healer.

    The others are DPS. I am not rich so I couldn't spend a LOT of plat. But I was thinking about hit/focus requirements, too.

    Always have the hit/focus requirements for the content you are aiming for...always which means if you have to rune a few items with hit/focus then do so. i Believe experts dungeons are 200 min, and 220 hit/focus to never miss same as T1 Raids (GSB/RoS) although memory a bit fuzzy on that one. Once you have successfully met the hit/focus requirements however then for a healing cleric i believe spellpower and spellcrit are best, although not all runes will give you direct spellpower/crit so Int or Wis otherwise.

    Im not a cleric so someone will have to confirm what i'm saying both above and here but i believe Int and Wis each contribute 0.5 Spellpower per point and Int is what gives +1 crit.

    For Rogues(which pretty much means warriors aswell) Dex is the main stat even though warriors it says strength if you look at character screen, (at least for dps warriors, strength still optimal for tanking)
    Dex for rogues gives +1 crit, 0.5 AP per points, strength 0.5AP per point, and i think its the same for warriors. Once you eventually get to 45% spellcrit or Phys crit (soft cap) then start stacking Spellpower or Attack Power. but i imagine for most of your toons you might be a little bit off hitting soft cap, most ppl won't hit that til HK raiding.

    For a Cleric the runes you should use are:

    Helm: Blazing Sagacious Rune
    or Icewatch Pardoner's Rune
    or Radiant Sharp Rune

    Chest: Blazing Insightful Rune

    Gloves: Blazing Unwavering Rune

    Belt: Mathosian Celebrant's Rune
    or Arcane Runguard Emblem

    Legs: Blazing Sagacious Rune
    or Devout Dragonslayer's Rune
    or Radiant Sharp Rune

    Feet: The Order of the Eye's Exemplar Rune/The Unseen Retributor's Rune
    or Incandescent Tenacious Rune
    or Blazing Resolute Rune

    Main Hand/Offhand/Wand: Blazing Recondite Runeshard
    or Incandescent Savvy Runeshard
    or Incandescent Calamitous Runeshard

    Two Hand: Blazing Recondite Rune
    or Incandescent Savvy Rune
    or Incandescent Calamitous Rune
    or Invigorating Runeshard (for Melee dps specs only)

    Clerics obtain 0.75 SP per 1 Wis and 0.25 SP and 1 Crit per 1 Int.

    Warrior should primarily aim for Dex over Str until reaching softcap ~970 rating selfbuffed. But that is going to change in 1.8 so don't get too used to stacking Dex.

    yes i forgot to edit the hit/focus for expert to 100/120, as for the rest of it im not a cleric which i stated so wasn't 100% sure on those, the rogue/warrior is currently accurate though, i just gave the stats not the actual rune names
